Our son's college roommate is visiting with us for a couple of days during spring break. He is a Type B. If I thought cooking for two blood types was complicated, planning a meal for three blood types is a real challenge.
For dinner tonight I fixed a leg of lamb. For the As, I warmed up some of last night's garlic chicken. We had curried rice, basil green beans, and tossed salad with a variety of raw vegetables. I made a quick stop at the grocery store this afternoon, and saw watermelons on sale. Remembering that watermelon is B Beneficial and O&A neutral, I bought one to go with oatmeal cookies for dessert.
Sue and Ron H. sent me another bread machine recipe. I tried it this afternoon since it was made with all spelt flour so all of us could eat it. After dinner I called my husband and daughter aside and said, "OK on a scale of 1-5, how was the bread." My husband said "five", my daughter held up 6 fingers. Here is the recipe:
1 cup + 2 Tbsp warm water
2 Tbsp oil
3 Tbsp brown sugar
1 Â½ tsp salt
3 Â¼ cups spelt flour
2 tsp dry Italian seasoning
1 Â¼ tsp Bread Machine yeast (I used 2 tsp active yeast)
Both my son and his roommate lift weights, work out, and drink protein shakes. I cautioned my son about being lured into trying whey protein. "You stick with soy, egg white or rice protein, " I said. But turning to his roommate I said, "You might really benefit from whey protein." They began kidding around, and the conversation ended with his roommate saying to me: Don't worry. If he bothers my protein, I'll say, "Get out of my whey."
